Montessori Pedagogy has already changed the educational paradigm that experts have been calling on for more than a decade. Creativity, initiative, self-confidence, problem-solving ability, teamwork, emotional and social skills along with basic executive functions are our work goals and form the foundations of what will be demanded of them in the future
The difference between a Montessori classroom and the extended and updated traditional methods is in the design of the classroom arranged to offer the child intellectual and personal development, in teachers trained as Guides and in the students working with the freedom and opportunity to choose activities according to their interests, interacting freely with their peers. Direct lessons are taught in the classroom while encouraging self-learning and cooperative learning. We work on traditional learning through activities that develop various skills simultaneously, taking advantage of the relationship between different knowledge areas to give the lesson more sense.
The child is given long periods of time in which they can freely choose to work on any area, delve into the subjects, have time to analyze, reason, try things out, make mistakes, correct themselves and explore and research in order to learn to create, decide and improve. Thus, the child keeps their innate motivation for learning alive and can concentrate in an environment of peace and tranquillity, setting themselves challenges in order work at the pace they set themselves.
